First, can I just tell you how much I’m obsessed with using Jennie-O All-Natural Ground Turkey Sausage in my paleo breakfast casserole recipes? Here are just a few reasons I’m a huge fan!

- My kids prefer turkey sausage to pork. Enough said! 😉
- It comes in a convenient 1 lb size, just the right amount for this recipe.
- Turkey sausage stores for a long time in the fridge and even longer in the freezer, so I can have it around for whenever I need it.
With all the different ways you can make a paleo breakfast casserole recipe, I promise that even people who aren’t low carb, paleo or dairy-free won’t feel like they are missing something. I’m sharing the one I made on the recipe card below, but also check the general process in the next section for ways you can customize it.
HOW TO MAKE PALEO BREAKFAST CASSEROLE (+ VARIATIONS!)
No matter what you like to put into your turkey sausage breakfast casserole, the process is pretty much the same. Here are the general steps, and you can easily customize the ingredients if you’d like:
COOK THE TURKEY SAUSAGE.
Make sure to use a higher temperature so that it browns and moisture evaporates. You can drain it if you need to, but I usually just use a high enough temperature that any moisture evaporates. And, turkey is pretty lean to begin with. Set aside.
COOK THE AROMATICS.
You can use onions, scallions, shallots and leeks. You can even add some spices at this point. Did you know some spices can become more flavorful if you cook them? You can also cook the garlic here, but I did it together with the turkey in the previous step.
STIR FRY THE VEGGIES AND HERBS.
I used cauliflower, red peppers, rosemary, and thyme. Feel free to use other low carb vegetables – check the low carb food list for ideas! Make sure you only cook veggies that stand up to heat, like rosemary and thyme. Softer herbs, like basil, are best added fresh without cooking.
